My family sat in a packed house(movie theater) and learned more reasons to not to support the export of coal to china. We are from longview wa. and a lot of people in that town support the export idea for the stimulation to the economy. They are uneducated about the travisty and scarring it will do to the land where it is mined. This element does not effect them. Nor does the planned train routes through Sand Point, ID, effect the others with intrest as trains can take multi routes after that choke point. The movie was good, but to gather more steem, it needs to show more people how it will effect them in a harmful way. Global Climate Change is one thing that effects everybody, thats true, but coal dust in the rivers will kill the endangered fish. Increased traffic on the water ways, and railways will slow everybody down. Health problems will increase all along the way. Exporting coal to anywhere is a bad idea.
